The Mechanical Engineering faculty is committed to providing the best undergraduate mechanical engineering education possible. We strive to nurture the intellectual, professional and personal development of our students; to continuously improve the curriculum, to be professionally current, and to maintain state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and learning.
We seek to prepare students for professional practice with a solid, scientifically-grounded foundation in the major topics of mechanical engineering: mechanics, mechanical design, dynamics, control, fluid mechanics, thermal science and materials science.
The faculty of our department aspire to make positive, substantive and lasting contributions to the lives of our students. This intent is embodied in the following program educational objectives:
Graduates will exhibit leadership in their fields either as designers, analysts, managers, educators or researchers.
Graduates will attain positions of responsibility in professional practice or be engaged in advanced study.
Graduates will behave professionally, act ethically and be responsive to global, societal and environmental needs. They will constantly seek to keep their knowledge current and will effectively communicate their knowledge and experience. They will be active in their professional communities and will collaborate with others.
